Mina from Princeton, NJ– Verified Buyer

I got these lights as my bedside reading lights and they work great. I have had them for only six months so haven't had to change the lamps yet but they came with special tweezers to use for bulb replacement!

It's OK, but needs more angling options

Eric from Boston, MA– Verified Buyer– Top 100 Reviewer

This light is fine but it's fixed in plane. We used them as reading lights for bed and they're really not so great. It works fine and it looks great, it's just not the right solution for us.

Decent Lights... Design Needs Refinement

DCHeaton from Newport Beach, CA– Verified Buyer

I am a designer of sorts myself including furniture and houses. I bought these lamps because I wanted something that could fold flat to the wall and out of the way. Well, these fold almost flat.... The arm of the lamp should have been shorter on the top bar or longer on the bottom...but because they made both of the arms the same length, when you fold it back, the lamp hits itself instead of resting flat to the wall.

The lights produce a really clear white light but might have been better with some sort of cover that would hide the actual bulb and diffuse the glare of the light just a little, making it more comfortable to read under.

Lastly, I think a result of poor manufacturing, the light bar (where the bulb sits) doesn't angle perfectly horizontal. It has a slight cant downward on its end.

This lamp is meant to be perfectly horizontal and fold back nicely on itself...otherwise it wouldn't have such a sharp and simple shape.

So, while I still like the lamps I would have preferred some better follow through by the designer.

Also, while I'd recommend these lamps to a friend I'd make sure they know my dislikes listed above.

Gorgeous Piece of Junk

Cynthia McLean from Concord, CA– Verified Buyer

First of all, I agree with the review regarding difficulty of changing the bulb. The bulb blew out after about 2 months of infrequent use. I purchased replacement lights and then attempted to change the bulb. The tool included was simply incapable of doing the job. I ended up taking the bulb out with a pair of needle-nose pliers - they actually fit in fairly easily and there was enough room to grasp only the metal part of the bulb as per the instructions. Replacement wasn't horribly difficult though it took some maneuvering. Turns out the lamp itself was dead. Too bad such a lovely lamp is so very poorly made.

What a beauty.....what a disappointment.. where's the parts?

Paulette Stream from Port Orchard WA

I read all the comments and agree to all that includes bulb replacement and removal, great design. I'm not an electrician
where to get the parts is my question after seeing the back of the lamp and knowing the bulb isn't the problem.

Works great for us!

Tina Marie from Lakeside Park, KY– Verified Buyer

We put this over my 9 year old son's bed for his reading light at night. It works very well for us. [...] It is attractive and modern looking. The arm swivels in and out easily and the light bar moves up and down. I would have liked the light bar to be able to move/tilt forward and backwards also, but it does not do that. Minor want, but overall, we are extremely happy with this purchase. [...] Happy Shopping!

well made light

booklight from nm

I got two of these to use as task lights next to bookcases - They can be extended from the wall to browse through a book and folded flat when not in use.
The pro is beautifully constructed lights with plenty of adjustments. particularly liked that the housing of the lightbulb had an adjustment to get it level.
The (possible) con is that that this is not an extremely bright light, something I was aware of from other reviews. This worked for our application

great design

Martial Artist from Pensacola, FL– Verified Buyer

We installed 2 over the head of the bed to free up night table space and to have the flexibility to extend the lighted area. My husband loves it for reading in bed. When propped up in bed with light extended to max, I find it just a bit underlighted, but love the design, and the ability to fold it so that it appears unobtrusive on the wall. It blends nicely with the decor in the bedroom.
